Reflect On Social Connections
There’s a brief description of this exercise here.
This happened to come just after an unusually full and connected day for me, so I decided to do this exercise in the morning, reaching back over the previous day. My three longest social connections:
- Feedback from someone who is mentoring me in a video project. His comments were excellent and gave me new directions to go, and I felt very in tune with him.
- A long conversation with a fellow parent while our children played together. I can’t say that the conversation flowed smoothly — I’m not sure either of us is socially adept enough for that — but there were moments where I felt very connected.
- I ended up taking my two boys out for food, and had an enjoyable meal with them. It isn’t often I spend time with them without their little sister taking my attention.
